Walking into Springtime

The week started with blue skies and
there's no resisting a walk among the new life of
Spring
Sweet pussy willows are opening to the sky with their feathery soft buds
 
I pass this sweet little creek on every walk through the village.
The melting snow forms an upside down heart shape.
{I like looking out for ♥'s}

*  *  *
This little squeaky fire hydrant is Misty's "baby."
She adores it.
She will not accept any imposters, but doesn't know what to make of this giant version that we pass by on our walks!
Sometimes Misty looks like a baby ewok {Star Wars}

Wishing you Many Wonderful Springtime Moments!

Darling photos for Sky Watch Friday complete with those buds that say spring. The clip of your little stream is lovely to watch, could do with that as a screen saver on a busy day in the office.

All the snow has finally melted, I'm hoping Spring is truly here. Loved the flowing creek and that heart, something we have in common Maria. Misty makes a cute ewok!

I finally have pussy willows. We planted them a few years ago and last year we had a few, this year there may be enough to cut and bring in the house. They make me happy!
